How you like them apples?
Itâ€™s the middle of apple season in Britain right now. If youâ€™ve got a tree, chances are youâ€™ve got more than you can eat – or maybe a neighbour or a friend has a tree thatâ€™s just loaded with fruit thatâ€™s going to go uneaten. Get those apples on Streetbank! Someone somewhere nearby doesnâ€™t have an apple tree, and wishes they did.
If youâ€™ve walked past someone elseâ€™s garden and happened to notice an apple tree, perhaps now would be a good time to knock on the door and introduce yourself.
Other things to do with lots of apples â€“ you could juice them, stew them, bake them into an apple cake or a pie, or even make an apple and parsnip soup. Any other ideas?
